No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

Wet, Wet, Wet.

Monday 5th March 2012.

Yesterday we drove up to Leeds to visit our Daughter, the A38 and M1 motorway were more like rivers with the amount of rain that had fallen over night and was still falling, I was glad when we arrived safely after passing an accident on the opposite carriageway causing a huge tailback, fortunately the journey back last night was dry and clear.
Before we set off yesterday morning Jayne spotted a strange little duck swimming around in the rain, after consulting a couple of twitcher books we decided it was a Pochard it was very shy and dived underwater as soon as I opened the side doors for a better look.

It's about half the size of a mallard and seemed quite happy in the company of the larger ducks.

We think it's a Pochard but would be happy to be corrected.

I wouldn't rate its chances on the M1!
